Are you tired of reading about whether Google Fiber is coming to the Triangle?

Apparently a lot of your are, based on a survey – albeit a small one – published Thursday.

But guess what? You have to wait a while longer, says Google.

No fiber present yet.

Even as AT&T plants fiber at a furious pace in parts of Raleigh (yes, they are digging up my lawn today after tunneling fiber all through the neighborhood where I live this week), Google on Thursday put the brakes on an expected announcement before the end of the year whether the Triangle and other metro areas would be selected for Google Fiber.

Here’s the news.

If you want Google Fiber, then weep – for now:

“This year gigabit Internet has moved from idea to reality, as mayors and city leaders across America have stepped up and made high-speed broadband access a priority for their community. We’ve been working closely with cities across the Triangle region to figure out how we could bring them Google Fiber, and we’re grateful for their vision, commitment, and plain old hard work. While we were hoping to have an update for cities before the holidays, we have a bit more work to wrap up; we’ll be back in touch sometime early next year.”

So wrote Google’s Lauren Barriere.

“Happy holidays!”

Bah, humbug!

Call me Scrooge but I want fiber and I want choice.
